From—His Britannic Majesty's Minister, Tehran,
To—The Secretary to the Government of India in the Foreign and Political Depart

The following has been addressed to the London Foreign Office and
repeated to Sir P. Cox, Basrah, and Pelrograd :—
Begins : Yesterday, about midnight, the Manager of the Bussian Bank
at Ispahan was murdered hy men who afterwards disappeared into the German
Consulate close to whicli the murder was committed. The Manager was also
Russian Vice-Consul at liumisheh. Slight wounds were inflicted on the
Belgian financial agent who was with Manager at the time. The Russian
Vice-Consul and His Majesty's Consul-General are convinced that the murderers
are connected with a band of ruffians whom the German Consul had recruited
for the purpose. As the Governor-General professes, in spite of strictest orders
from Tehran, not to be able to take requisite measures as long as the gendar
merie is entirely on the Germans’ side, they consider the position of the British
and Russian communities to be somewhat dangerous.
Of course, I shall give the Russian Minister every possible support to
obtain satisfaction, but I feel that it will be imperative for us to show we are
ready to give them material support by landing troops at Fuizeli, if the Persian
Government is not strong enough to afford it.
